You’ve wandered into the topsy-turvy world of Tulgey Wood, the blog of writer and historian Jim Fanning. Tulgey Wood celebrates artistry and creativity (and sometimes just plain madness): movies, animation, TV, books, comics—and of course Disney, lots and lots of true-blue, through-and-through Disney, including D23 and Disney twenty-three Magazine, and Sketches Magazine and the Walt Disney Collectors Society. Tulgey Wood is so fun, fascinating and full of frolicsome photos and facts, it’s scary. So wander through the wonder of it all, and enjoy.

Alien Life Form Approaching!

October 16 is Lost in Space Day—for on that date in 1997 (in the first episode of the classic TV, broadcast on CBS on September 15, 1965), the "Space Family" Robinson, the Robot and "reluctant stowaway" Dr. Zachary Smith blasted off aboard the Jupiter II—and were soon, well, lost in space.    Can this wonderful TV series be considered part of Countdown to Halloween 2013? Of course, for it featured some horrifying space creatures (just ask Dr. Smith). To celebrate October 16, 2013, here is a intergalactic gallery of some ghastly outer space goons—plus the treat (no trick) of a CBS publicity photo of Will Robinson Halloweening with some classic Lost in Space creatures.

Joe, glad you liked it! I'm glad we are both such LIS fans. I always enjoy your LIS posts, right down to your frequent use of the Season 3 countdown numbers! And I laughed out loud at your great Dr. Smith/Walking Dead mash-up. Your Smith dialog/characterization was spot-on.
